Life in Izmir

Photo series

What the media do not show is everyday life.


I live in a country that is home to many Turkish immigrant families. In general, one can say that the relations between Germany and Turkey are close. 


Unfortunately, since 2016, bilateral relations have been subject to ever-increasing tension.  In the German media there are constant reports about the political and economic developments in Turkey. We read endlessly about life in Turkey, but we do not see it.


With my photo series "Life in Izmir", I show everyday snapshots of the megacity on Turkey's Aegean coast in a time of alarming reporting.
